Chris Evans still won't admit that Captain America is going to die in Avengers 4

Earlier this month, Chris Evans tweeted that he had finished his work filming Avengers 4, most likely bringing his time as Captain America in the MCU to an end.

Original Aladdin screenwriter highlights some of the shadier aspects of Disney's live-action remake craze

For most of us, the release of the recent teaser for Disney’s live-action, Guy Ritchie-directed Aladdin was little more than a digital comma, a 90-second lacuna in which our brains neutrally registered the thought, “Oh, yep, that’s Aladdin,” and then moved on. But for at least one of the people partially responsible…

Drake praises Pusha T's diss track "chess move," still thinks someone should punch him "in the fucking face"

The Smash Mouth musical exists, and it's all "All Star," all the time

Let’s start with a dark, furtive confession: Divorced of its association with millions of repeats, remixes, and sound clips of Mike Myers screaming “Donkey!”, Smash Mouth’s hit anthem “All Star” is still a pretty damn catchy song. Relentlessly bright and fast-paced, it’s an earworm for a reason, even if its been so…

Spider-Man's looking very Superior in the latest bootleg set pics from Far From Home

Spider-Man’s proving to be quite a Clothes-Horse in his upcoming Homecoming sequel, Far From Home: Crafty photographers (including Instagram account comicgodz) have snapped a few new shots of Tom Holland on the set of the 2019 film, sporting what’s apparently the fourth distinct spider suit that’s been spotted in…

John Carpenter: No one involved with Dwayne Johnson's Big Trouble In Little China remake "gives a shit about me and my movie"

Amid the thousand or so projects he’s working on at any given moment—which currently include Jungle Cruise, Fast And Furious spin-off Hobbs And Shaw, Black Adam, a Jumanji sequel, and his controversial decision to play black folk hero John Henry for Netflix—you’d be forgiven for letting a few of Dwayne Johnson’s…
